My figure-related goals for 2019My figure-related goals for 2019

I haven't posted many diary articles yet, but I find writing down goals helps me achieve them. So without further ado, here are my figure-related goals for 2019:

1 ) Build permanent shelves for box storage.
I currently keep my figure boxes in a utility room in the basement. Most of them are packed into larger covered storage bins (usually 4 to 6 boxes per bin). The bins have been great for moving, providing extra protection to prevent from them getting damaged, as well as protecting them from dust or moisture. There was recently a sizable water spill in that area, but the figures stayed safely high and dry. However, the current racks I'm storing them on aren't well-suited to holding many of them, and I've nearly reached the limit of how many bins I can store there. Also, due to their size and shape, there is quite a bit of wasted space.

My plan is to install some permanent shelves to replace the current shelving racks. The 3 current freestanding shelves I'm using provide approximately 52 square feet of storage space, but a significant amount of that is wasted due the shelf width compared to the bin size. With the new shelf layout I'm planning, the amount of space should increase to 64 square feet, and more importantly, the space should be able to accommodate significantly more bins or other items. Ultimately, that would allow me to safely store more boxes for additional figures.

2 ) Buy about 8 to 12 figures.
Why set a limit? I find buying about 1 figure a month is a good pace for myself, but there are some months (summer time, for example), where I may not be able to devote as much time to the hobby. Also, during the summer, I might be travelling, and I don't want to deal with worrying about the possibility of a box being delivered while I'm away. If I happen to see some really good deals on figures I've been looking for, it's possible I could wind up getting more than one a month, but that may balance out with other months where I don't get any. Also, it's not so much about cost, since I can easily afford to buy more if I really wanted to. Maintaining a healthy pace will help from both a cost and storage space perspective.

3 ) Obtain at least one of my top wished figures.
There are several figures that I'm really interested in getting, and I'm keeping a very close eye on them at various sites and 2nd hand sales venues. Last year I managed to pick up a few that were high on my list, and I'm hoping to get at least one more of them this year. If I manage to do that, I'll consider it a big success. More than one would be pure gravy.

4 ) Post at least one review of an older figure.
I've got a few figures that don't appear to have many photos or any review articles. At the very least, I'd like to get some good photos of them and upload them, and while I'm at it, I'll try to make a review. Even though they are older figures that may not be as widely available, it could help other collectors that may be interested in tracking them down.

5 ) Reach 1000+ linked photos and figures for the Nopan Nirvana club (NSFW warning - CLUB #1724)
We're already in the 900+ range for each, so it shouldn't be too hard to do that. BTW, for anyone reading this - if you're interested in those types of figures, please check out the club. New members are welcome!

Hopefully, I can achieve all of those goals in 2019!
